Weight loss, I am so proud of myself. ☺🖤

Weight loss, I am so proud of myself. ☺🖤
Last year around this same time I was 165 lbs. After I had my two daughters my weight went from 130(before first pregnancy) to 150-160. It was always between 150-160. For 8 years I wanted to lose the weight but didn't know how to do it. I thought I couldn't do it and I told myself I didn't have the time. I always gave myself excuses. But when I finally got to 170 lbs on the beginning of February was when I finally decided to lose the weight. I was always afraid of failing and disappointing myself, but if I didn't try I would just keep gaining. I had people tell me that I didn't need to lose weight and that I didn't look fat.


I wasn't doing it for anyone buy myself. I felt super unhealthy. I couldn't even run around and play with my kids because I would get tired too quickly. So on February I started to do research and decided to count calories and workout from home by doing YouTube videos. At first I was working out 3 days a week for 20-25 min. I knew that if I went too hard in the beginning with everything I would overwhelm myself, tell myself it was too much, and quit. It was a lifestyle change that I wanted make and not a race that I had to hurry up and complete by a specific date. I slowly made my workouts longer than 25 min and after that I added more days. Now here I am at 110 lbs still counting calories and now I workout 5 days a week for an hr. It no longer feels like chore to me. I am so proud of myself. ☺🖤
